A MOTORBIKE worth £1,000 has been stolen from Yorkshire Coast College.

The blue and yellow Husaberg F540 motorbike was taken from the Lady Edith’s Drive campus at some time between 4pm on Wednesday and 4pm on Thursday last week.

The motorcycle was stolen from a storage shed in the grounds of the college.

The bike had no petrol, meaning the offenders must have pushed it away from the scene and either taken it to a local property or loaded it onto a waiting van.

Police believe that the bike could have been taken off the grounds of the college in a number of directions, either over the playing fields bordering Scalby Road or towards Raincliffe School and then onto Lady Edith’s Drive.

Police are urging anyone with information about the stolen bike to get in touch as soon as possible.

PC Rebecca Lalor, of Scarborough police, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the stolen motorbike being pushed away from the college around the time the theft occurred to pass on any information that can help the investigation.

“The area is popular with dog walkers and I would be grateful to anyone who noticed anything suspicious if they could contact the police or Crimestoppers.

She added: “I would also like to speak to anyone who has seen a bike matching the description in the local area or has been offered one for sale recently.”

Anyone who can help the police with their inquiries is urged to contact PC Rebecca Lalor, of Scarborough Police, on 0845 6060247, quoting reference number, 12110103701.
